Caramel Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


These cookies don't look like much.  They look like regular chocolate cookies, but they are more then the seem.


They have a hidden surprise inside.  I stuffed a caramel square inside each cookie.  The cookies are more decadent and less healthy than their looks suggest.  I wish I had a picture to show their insides, but I forgot to take a picture.  Such a tragedy!

Tomato Peach Salad with Basil


It seems like fall has started.  The weather is cooler and a little brisk.  At the grocery store today, I saw a few displays with fall baking goods.



I like fall baking.  I'm excited about delicious treats full of pumpkin and apple.  I recently baked some pumpkin muffins, and I anticipate making pumpkin cookies.

Banana Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting


My bike tire burst while riding my bike to work yesterday.  I'm not sure what happened.  It was sudden and dramatic.  Luckily, I was only a few blocks from work.  I was able to walk the rest of the way.  


I pushed my bike to a bike shop after work, and the repair man fixed it in about 20 minutes.  I thought I would have to leave it overnight, but I ended up riding it home.

Chicken Massaman Curry


Yesterday I was walking and talking in a park.  I was not looking at my path.  My foot fell into a whole.  I fell and twisted my ankle.


It hurt a little, but I assumed I could just walk it off.  It wasn't a big deal, but I had to walk a few miles that day. Today my angle is stiff and puffy.  Woe is me.

Strawberry and Chocolate Pancakes


Today was a beautiful day.  The weather has been hot for September, but today was perfectly mild.  There was a little breeze and some cloud cover.  It was as close to perfection as you can get.


There are free weekly exercise class taught in the park during the summer that are still being held in September.  Today I went to a pilates class.  The last few weeks have been hot and bright.

Berry, Gouda, Bacon, and Almond Green Salad with Red Onion


What a beautiful salad! It is colorful and bright.  It is packed full of delicious berries.


I used blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in salad.  Raspberries are perennials and are planted in the winter.  They are grown in colder climates.  The chilly weather is essential for the buds to break.

Apple, Caramelized Onion, and Cheddar Pizza with Walnuts


It's Friday! I have officially worked at my new job for three weeks.  I like my new job.  I'm busy, and I'm learning new things.


My new job doesn't have a gym.  I became accustomed to exercising at a gym at my last job.  This month I have been riding my bike to work so often that I haven't felt the need for much more exercise.
